Creativity is the highest form of intelligence. Studies have shown that highly creative people are highly intelligent but highly intelligent people are not always creative. An intelligent person is very knowledgable and has excellent information recall. A creative person creates knowledge by coming up with new ideas through a mental process of connecting existing concepts.
Many of us have been trained to suppress creativity. We often look for safer forms of intelligence because creativity can be risky. Yes, creativity leads to uncharted waters; however, avoiding creativity and stepping out of your comfort zone does not guarantee safety.
In order to make progress and move a head, we must embrace creativity. No one ever created anything exceptional by sticking with the status quo. Be curious and have fun! See new possibilities and try new things! You never know what it will lead to.
Be brave, be bold, be creative!
